“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Update on the Cat Vomit ...
Tuesday, November 24, 2009

The reader who sent us the photo of the strange hairy blob (featured in this blog post a few days ago), actually sent a picture of it to the University of Georgia extension agent in her hometown. She heard back and sent me their response:

"Hey Gena,Your poop pet is interesting. Apparently whatever Spot threw up or pooped out was a good substrate for fungi to grow in. Take a look at the stream of comments on this website:http://www.ubcbotanicalgarden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=34791 This sounds like the fungus in your photo. Nothing to be worried about - just something to marvel at. Sorry for the slow response. Hope y'all are doing well. Karol KellyBibb County Extension Agent 736 Riverside Drive Macon, GA 31201-0378"

Whew! Mystery solved!
